North Korea shot down a US military spy plane over international waters in 1969 killing 31 Americans. Why did we not go to war with N. Korea then? Were we too deep into Vietnam? Were we too afraid of directly fighting the Soviets (assuming the USSR would have gone to war with us over an attack on N. Korea)? Was there ever an international court held for this case?
I can find a lot of information on the subject, but nothing about the aftermath.
